Americans are gradually returning to international travel, though restrictions remain in place in many countries. In March 2021 – the most recent month for which data is available – around 3 million American citizens traveled outside of the country. Still, international travel by Americans remains far below pre-pandemic levels.
Whether before or during the pandemic, international travel is something a 71% majority of U.S. adults have done at some point in their lives, according to a June Pew Research Center survey. By contrast, 27% have not traveled abroad. Still, who travels and how much differs substantially across demographic groups.
